Lumberjacks! Hockey! Maple Syrup! Talking beavers! All that and more in this fun-filled evening you won’t want to miss!


Attention all Canadians and everyone who likes Canadians! (Honestly, who doesn't like Canadians!?) July 1st is Canada Day: the day that we celebrate all the wonderful things about the "True North, Strong and Free." FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW (2022 Tony Award® Honoree for Excellence in the Theatre) will be celebrating this illustrious holiday by inviting Canadian songwriter JOSHUA STACKHOUSE to return with his merry band of fellow Canucks for an evening of original music - all about Canada! Lumberjacks! Hockey! Maple Syrup! Talking beavers! All that and more in this fun-filled evening you won't want to miss!

Stackhouse, a member of the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop and regular contributor of original material to cabarets around New York City, will host a night of songs he wrote about Canada featuring a cast comprised almost entirely of Canadian expats: Jordan Bell, Eric Coles, Kaylee Harwood, Cassie Nadeau (Founder of the burlesque company FULL BODIED SOUND), and JACQUI SIROIS. The show balances self-deprecating silliness (including a soul-searching lumberjack and an irreverent beaver puppet named "Justin Beaver") with earnest moments celebrating Canada's culture of neighborliness. And what Canadian show would be complete without one of the most time-honored Canadian traditions: poking fun at America? American performers Paul Pilcz (Who recently starred in the critically acclaimed four-man cabaret MAMA'S BOYS), MEAGHAN SANDS (A frequent performer in Susie Mosher's THE LINEUP) as well as JOHN and Matthew Drinkwater ("THE DRINKWATER BROTHERS") join in the fun.

CANADA DAY WITH JOSHUA STACKHOUSE & FRIENDS plays Feinstein's/54 Below (254 West 54th Street) on July 1st.There is a $25 base cover charge and a $25 food and beverage minimum. Tickets on the day of performance after 4:00 are only available by calling (646) 476-3551.
